What are your general comments?

"Overall, it was a great experience. The tours were great, and the students were so easy to talk to and obviously knew a lot about the school and all kinds of opportunities for students. By far, the roughest part for me was sitting in a tiny little room for lunch, and staying there until being called for your interview. Once my interviewer called me and I began chatting with her on the way to our room, I thought I was fine. The second interviewer was the closed-file one, so asked all the questions, and intentionally tried to throw me off. He was in fact very confrontational, but it seemed to be a ploy to see if he could rattle me. I laughed most of it off, and then he noted I was ''very wound up.'' So, great, I have no idea how it went. " Report Response
